L5 at Amazon, L63 (senior) offer at MS.
The offer TC is higher for MS in comparison with the current Amazon TC (cliff), but if I compare it with L6 of Amazon it's much lower. It's somehow like the regular TC of L5 at Amazon.
Would you consider this move in general to be a downgrade?
I mean I feel the senior title of MS is much lower than the senior of Amazon.
TC at Amazon: 190k
TC of MS offer: 250k
There are also real benefits at MSFT like an full 50% match to 401k contribution, ESPP, no medical insurance premium, and discounts on MSFT products and software.
You have the weirdest idea about “downgrade” especially comparing it to something you don’t have.
